Kelly Slater, the patron of the 2017 Outerknown Fiji Pro, has been knocked out of competition in Round 3.
The waves were not big, but they were fun. Cloudbreak delivered four-to-five foot surf and sent a few top seeds home early. For example, Connor O’Leary eliminated Slater.
“It is always tough to win that low scoring, but I am over the moon. I thought the energy was there at the start, but as soon as the trades came up, it went to nothing. I was glad I had two average scores to finish it off,” said O’Leary.
